AMAZON SURVIVAL 8 DAYS is the amazon jungle survival training evolution that focuses on learning a little bit more in depth about indigenous Amazon survival techniques lived daily in a real, remote and not-so-welcoming  jungle scenario. This short training evolution will also have the purpose of giving each participant the confidence necessary to; survive in the wilderness for longer periods of time, and in unexpected situations within very unique and isolated territories such as the Amazon.  

 

Always keep in mind that any expedition or training that our team leads, and classified as moderate or basic levels of difficulty, for those who are not used to the complex terrain of the Amazon, there will be the possibility that many may have the impression of being going through an experience of higher difficulty levels.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • BOOKING IN ADVANCE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (for collection of personal information, government access permits to protected areas, transportation arrangements, exploration team assignments, English Speaking Guides availability, and all logistics support needed).

  • Participants need to have sufficient time in Iquitos in order to successfully execute this training evolution. We recommend arriving at least one day before the commencement of your training and have one full day minimum after the end.

  • Participants will be provided with an additional 5 kilos of gear approx. (machetes, rubber boots, military tactical tents/mosquito netting, rain ponchos and eating utensils)

  • This training evolution is only open to highly motivated participants with a strong adaptation capabilities and who are in good physical and mental condition, as they will be responsible for carrying their own equipment on each exploration hike through the primary jungle, as well as to go far and beyond for their own survival needs.

  • Weather conditions will not be an obstacle for the completion of every scheduled survival activity.
